"Lilly with Simplistic Staging by LJR did an outstanding job and I would recommend them to anyone selling their home. Lily's staging helped my Seller get a much higher sales price than if we had not used Lily to stage the home. Lily exceeded all my expectations.
Windermere Silicon Valley
"My seller moved out of her home prior to us putting the home on the market. I knew it would attract more buyers if the home was staged and not left vacant. When I met with Lily, she told me her vision, but when I saw it done, I couldn't believe it. It looked amazing! My Seller's neighbor brought their mutual friends to see the home because she couldn't believe the phenomenal transformation. The home sold with multiple offers after the first Open House weekend for more than the appraised value! I highly recommend Lily.
"I wanted to thank you for making everything look so clean and fresh and modern. I have received so many calls from friends today after I sent them the MLS. Everyone thinks it looks bigger and brighter (of course new lights throughout helps a lot). Thank you very much.
"Lilly and her team are a dream to work with. As I start each flip project, Lilly always makes herself available to walk through the project with me and help me with layout and interior design choices. Lilly's staging work is contemporary and fits perfectly with the style of the homes. She knows exactly how to accessorize the homes so that the best features are amplified, and the flaws are drawn away from. Lilly is also very flexible and accommodating with my scheduling requests. Sometimes the dates I request are not available anymore and she kindly fits me into her schedule by staging my house in the afternoon. Sometimes I forget to give her advance notice to remove staging, and Lilly always makes it work. Lilly goes above and beyond to help me getting my properties ready. She would let me know if something needs to be taken care of before the photographer arrives and she even changed the light bulbs on a pendant light for me once. For the amazing work she does, her price is very reasonable and competitive. I love working with Lilly and highly recommend her to anyone who has a home to sell."

I recommend working with Lily if you want your home to stand out with pizazz that’s sure to garner a successful real estate transaction quickly.”
Theresa O’Brien / Homeowner
"Lilly is truly a breath of fresh air. She makes everyone that meets her very comfortable and she enjoys receiving input from us and our clients in her design ideas and choices. She is truly a professional above all professionals in her field. From beginning to end she treats every home as her one and only and makes it look so inviting and always wows buyers and agents alike. The final result is always a sold home. "
Faris - Taylor Team / Intero Real Estate Services
"We recently sold our home in Los Altos and through the experience I found out that staging is an important part of the process. Lilly was referred to us by our realtor and now I know why. She is extremely talented and was able to transform my home into a masterpiece. She designs her look around the character of the house so that each assignment is a unique creation. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised at the finished product. Lilly is a consummate professional giving attention to detail and flow so that our home showed beautifully. I was also impressed by the positive attitude and pleasant demeanor of Lilly and her team as they worked under a time constraint to present the finished work for the pictures. We would use Simplistic Staging again because they deliver a great product and experience for the homeowner and help to showcase the beauty of any home. BTW,our visitors gave us many compliments and we had a very successful showing. Much thanks to Lilly and Staff.
Laura and Family, Los Altos
"We found Lilly Rahbar on-line, and are so very happy that we hired her to stage our home. We immediately knew, from looking at Simplistic Staging website’s Virtual Tours and gallery, that Lilly’s staging flair would be perfect in our home. Early-on in the process of selling our home, we decided that it would have to be professionally staged. Our 3,300 sq. ft. home has two master suites, three more bedrooms, a huge bonus room in addition to family, living and dining room/areas. It needed to feel inviting and show buyers that their family could live in this updated spacious home. Lilly was very professional, listened to our ideas, and discussed how she could incorporate those ideas into her staging design. She was communicative during the process, responsive, prompt and provided a reasonable price point. Lilly’s creativity, vision and staging created beautiful vignettes. Each elegant space included warm bursts of color which drew buyers into the home and from one room to another. Our staged home was described by family and friends as beautiful, gorgeous, great, awesome, amazing, very pretty and NICE!. We can’t thank Lilly enough for the wonderful service she provided to us."
Paul & Diana S., San Jose Homeowner
"For anyone considering to stage or not to stage, I highly recommend Lilly. I think it’s quite normal to feel “this is my home” or “why wouldn’t anyone like my home the way it is?” Lilly puts her design skills to use recreating areas that allow prospective buyers to envision their furnishings in your home. I tried to keep the staging, but alas, after three days the house was sold!"
Greg and Leslie, Homeowners
"I think most realtors would agree that we are only as good as the team we surround ourselves with. Over the years of using various staging companies it has always been a challenge to find one that exceeded my expectations in both an artistic sense and understanding of a realtor's needs. Surprisingly, Lilly of Simplistic Staging excels in both these areas and more. I consider Lilly and her crew an integral part of my team because of her flair for design that aims to appeal to the widest audience possible. Her extremely accommodating personality demonstrates her understanding of the need to be flexible while anticipating many of my needs...sometimes even before I realize them myself. As the housing market changes and homes sit a while longer, staging will become increasingly important to distinguish your listing from the rest. If you want to impress your seller give Lilly a call. She will not make any promise she cannot deliver on. That's reliability!"
Steve Chin, REA / Realty World/Sigma Six
"Lilly did an incredible job staging our house. It was really important for us that the staging captured the unique, charming and welcoming attributes of our home, as well as its functionality. Lilly did exactly that. She put just the right decorating touches that highlighted our place's lively and harmonious vibe. She has a versatile decorating style and a great ability to use existing furniture and still achieve a fresh, new look. Our house was sold over the first weekend it was on the market, and we believe it was in big part thanks to Lilly's staging. In all our interactions with Lilly, she was extremely professional and nice to work with. We highly recommend her."
Monica, Sunnyvale / Homeowner
"I am so impressed with the work that Lilly Rahbar and her assistant Pamela did in transforming my listings into showcase homes. They were able to work with my clients tastes and furnishings as well as completely reimagine the spaces in the home. On a recent listing, they used only a few pieces of the client's furnishings and brought in comtemporary, clean accessories and furniture. What a difference! The Realtors that saw the home on tour all said "Wow!". Both listings that used Lilly's service sold in 6 days. The staging made all the difference in the world. I want Lilly to stage my own house next!"'
Marian Tankersley / RE/MAX Realty Partners
"Lilly is my hero! She was referred by a colleague and this was the first time she staged a home for me. To be honest, I was a little nervous on how she was going to stage it. My seller was still very emotionally attached to the home and wanted to stage it with the same tone as she had it prior. The problem was that the prior colors and furniture were pretty outdated. I explained this to Lilly and expressed my concern on how this will work since we wanted to give the home a modern look. I was rest assured that she was going to do her best. Well, she did better than her best. My seller was very pleased and we sold the house within a few days for almost $200k above the asking price. I find it amazing of what her eye can do for my client and me. Thank you Lilly for an awesome job! I will definitely use you again and recommend you to others!!"
Irene Yuson / Keller Williams Realty
"As a real estate professional, having a good stager is a must. I've worked with numerous stagers and hands down Lilly is the best. She's efficient, great with appointments, my sellers Love her, and she's very hard working. If you are looking for a stager, look no further hands down she is top drawer"
Jack Jweinat / Berkshire-Hathaway
"Hi Lilly - The Seller and I both want to THANK YOU for a job well done! Not only do you have a wonderful eye for design, you have also been very responsive and professional. Seller and I both loved how you integrated blue into your staging so the blue carpet doesn't seem so dated. We appreciate that!
Elise Wu, Realtor / Abundance Realty
" I just saw the home with the photographer and it looks great!! Thank you Lily, that is exactly what I wanted!"
Blanca Ramirez, Broker/Owner / Homes & Beyond Realty
"While on a weekly realtor tour of homes in Silicon Valley, I toured a home that had been staged by Lilly Rahbar. I was most impressed with her use of color and furnishings. Knowing that I had homes that would soon be on the market I contacted her for further details. I found Lilly to be extremely knowledgeable. Her initial consultation was very thorough, she answered all my questions and left me with plenty of ideas. There was no pressure to hire her. First of all, I appreciated that Lilly really listened to me and it felt like we were working together as a team as there were things I specifically wanted. Secondly, I am sure it made the home sell faster. Additionally, this home sold for well over asking which really pleased the seller. Most of all my seller was very pleased with the outcome of the staging. I must admit she was initially somewhat reluctant, but later admitted the staging paid for itself many times over. Most realtors realize the importance of a staged home. It gives the prospective buyer ideas on how they can make best use their furnishings. It increases the value of a home and most homes sell faster if they are staged. Lilly was very easy to work with and a consummate professional. Very soon she will be coming to give a presentation to realtors at my office. Needless to say, I would highly recommend Lilly and LJR staging.
Athenia Kelley, Realtor / Keller Williams Realty
"Working with Lilly was so wonderful. She gave me a great price and I was so impressed with her decorating and design of the house. Buyers and agents commented on how nice it was. One even said it felt like a beach house! Who doesn't want to live in a beach house! It just made the home feel, clean and fresh and open. I sold it before offer due date and way above asking. It was so worth bringing in Lilly and her professional touch. Her and I discussed what we would accentuate and she really went above and beyond with her special touch! I cant wait to bring her in on another listing to really make the home feel special. Thank you Lilly!"
Ginger Willson, Realtor / Gillmore & Associates
"Lilly was absolutely amazing! She was very professional and she was very hands on throughout the whole process. My client and I were very impressed with the final product. She made a home that was cluttered and messy into a clean, simple, organized, modern home that you would love to have. She brought the vision to life and we are so thankful for her hard work! From the initial consultation to the completion she was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her to any Realtor or homeowner who is in need of staging!"

She communicated so well and was so nice to everyone involved in the transaction. I would highly recommend her."
Monique Lombardelli, Principle / Modern Homes Realty
"Lilly, The house sold the weekend you staged it. The buyers saw the home vacant and made up their mind once it was staged"
Maria Stout, Realtor / Atlas Reality Services
"As I was relocating across country, Lilly Rahbar provided staging for the sale of my home in September 2012. The staging made the house appear more spacious and the furniture and decorations used made the house feel warm and inviting. She handled all the arrangements with my broker without any direction from me, which was great given how quickly I had to move out and get the house on the market. Very professional service and I would definitely recommend her."
R. Burns / Homeowner
"Lilly Rahbar with Simplistic Staging was great to work with! Her staging expertise helped lighten up the mood of the house visually, and definitely helped buyers relate to the space very positively. I'd definitely recommend Lilly and her team to anyone looking for that extra boost when selling a home -- I'm very sure it helped speed up our sale."
Barbara O. / Homeowner
"Your staging worked and my house sold the first weekend on the market.
Erin, San Jose / Homeowner
"Lilly did a terrific job of staging our family home. Her style and expertise made our 50 year old home show like a model. Within one week of the house hitting the MLS, we had over seven offers and three were above the asking price!
Roxanne, San Jose / Homeowner
"You did an awesome job and made the home feel much bigger. We got way over asking and Bill is so excited to move on. Thank you again and I will be calling you soon for my next listing."
